Hi everyone! I've volunteered to help coordinate an information and editing event at the Monterey Public Library in beautiful Monterey California in conjunction with the Internet Librarian conference. This is a free event. The space will accommodate up to 75 people and we already have 20 people signed up. If you are interested in helping out please let me know. Depending on numbers it would be great to have 10 people with Wiki experience. I think it will be fun, and what a beautiful location.
Saturday, Oct 22nd
10am-1pm followed by a tour of the Monterey Public Library
